–– Publishers Weekly Starred Review
   "This book is perfect for children between the ages of three and six. This is a great choice for children who enjoy a book with busy illustrations and like to take their time finding all the little hidden gems in each picture. I think this book would also encourage children to look around their own neighborhoods to see all the things happening that might otherwise go unnoticed."

–– Kristin Guay, Youth Services Book Review
